Breitling Oil and Gas Morning Podcast #261 3-27-13

US Interior Sec. Ken Salazar issued a record of decision that
finalizes a development process for federal oil shale and
tar sands resources in Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming. The
US Bureau of Land Management simultaneously proposed
revisions to regulations governing commercial development of
those resources.
The two actions make nearly 700,000 acres in the three states
available for potential oil shale leasing and 130,000 acres in
Utah available for potential tar sands leasing, Salazar said on
Mar. 22.
Salazar stated: This plan maintains a strong focus on research
and development to promote new technologies that
may eventually lead to safe and responsible commercial
development of these domestic energy resources
My thoughts: Far from an ‘all-of-the-above’ energy plan, these
proposals do real harm to our efforts to right the economy and
improve our energy security
